The Sound & Light Hire Company Talk Event Lighting

One of the most crucial aspects in organising a business event is deciding what type of lighting setup to use and how to make sure it suits perfectly to the occasion, whether it’s a product launch, a conference or a trade show. Hard sets are no longer the only option for creating remarkable corporate event environment. Of course, you can always have the option to resort to a DIY or perhaps rely to the in-house event lighting available.

What makes the right lighting essential to your event is that it will tell your audience where to set their attention to the most appropriate areas of the room, build the perfect business event atmosphere, and eventually set the stage for the occasion. In a conference event for example, you want to make sure that your audience will stay engaged and focused on the speaker from the very beginning of the event until the end. So to be able to do that, you want to think of ways to effectively play with your  lighting setup.

In this blog post, we have put together some important points on how to get started with your event lighting setup, lighting mistakes to avoid to improve your overall setup of your upcoming corporate event. 

Before going over the specifics of your event lighting,

you must first consider the size and type of your venue location, as well as the number of guests who will be attending, when selecting the right lighting system for you. A simpler, less dramatic setup may be suited for a small, indoor venue. While a more extravagant, high-end lighting fixture may be required for a bigger venue with a large-scale crowd. 

And the first take-away? At all costs, do not go for glaring white fluorescent lamps. These are extremely irritating to the eyes and can cause your audience tiredness and distorted vision especially in a conference or a seminar event. Delegates are often uplifted and energised by soft, warm lighting around the sides or natural lighting from windows.

With more than a decade of experience, The Sound & Light Hire Company is an expert in delivering creative and customised event lighting solutions. The company has been setting the standard for event lighting design in Surrey and London and we have the portfolio to back it up. We take pride in our dedication to delivering the best lighting service possible for our clients and their events.

but most importantly building a good working relationship with our clients that lead to a perfectly tailored lighting design that maximise effect and generate an unforgettable atmosphere on their business events. Moreover, we are a full-service events production company for all your lighting needs as one of the largest event services provider in the area. 

Any corporate event must establish a professional appearance and one way to achieve such is to consider an intelligent moving light setup that can be adjusted from bright to dim or transitioning room lighting to draw concentration to the hosts or guests speakers who will be on stage.   

The Sound & Light Hire Company specializes in the most cutting-edge LED lighting technology

with over 15 different styles of LED uplighters available for both indoor and outdoor use, in both LED bar and LED par can formats. Renting lighting equipment with features mentioned above will be worth your budget to be able to set the right mood to your conference. 

And finally, another important aspect in event lighting setup that most event organisers tend to neglect is the lighting truss system or rigging. You want to make sure that your attendees are not only having a productive time but also safe while your corporate event is taking place. You do not want to deal with any of them tripping over scrambled lighting wires and cords. That’s why a professional event lighting company is essential in your event. The Sound & Light Hire Company can take care of this for you. We only use Global F34 box truss as well as F34 truss section among the wide array of other lighting trus system we have readily available for rent on any of your events, not just on a conference event but as well as on wedding receptions and live music festivals.
